THE old Cross-Keys bar in Calpe was recently totally refurbished over a three month period, and transformed into the stunning Metro Resturant and Bar, with the feel of a friendly London gastro pub. It is stylish, modern and has quickly established itself as the ‘place to be’ by offering a superb range of food, freshly made daily and priced to allow a regular affordable dining out experience.
Metro owners, Gary and Christine, came from New Zealand, two years ago with their five young children to settle in Calpe, bringing with them their previous bar and restaurant experience.
Open all day from , the €4.90 ‘full English’ is great value, or simply relax in comfort with a coffee and tostada, or even indulge yourself in a slice of the rich home-made cakes on offer.
As well as some traditional British favourites like Fish ‘n’ Chips, Sunday Roast Dinner, and home-made Steak Pies, the Metro menu is also complimented with a range of fresh salads, succulent steaks and gourmet burgers. Of course, if you still feeling hungry then the mouth-watering Apple Crumble or a wicked Death by Chocolate is worth indulging in. So good it’s sinful!
Our chef’s own specials include Garlic Prawns, Roasted New Zealand Rack of Lamb (which is the house speciality and absolutely melt-in-your-mouth).
To compliment the restaurant, the bar is open all hours where you can relax with a glass of wine or your favourite and enjoy the complimentary tapas. Entertainment also abounds with Sports TV – football/rugby, Bingo Thursday evenings, Live Music, Dine & Dances.
And with a large covered outdoor balcony, comfortable inside booth seating, or separate modern function room (no charge for hireage) there is space for everyone.
If you are still at a loss of where to go for those special events, then the Metro is certainly worth considering. They are currently running a 4-course Christmas Menu of The Day for the month of December for only €14.90. The Christmas Day menu is a lavish 6-course affair including one bottle of wine per person, all for only €35.
If you already have plans for Christmas Day, then make a trip out on Christmas Eve to enjoy a set-menu Dine/Dance and show with The Nomad.
And don’t forget the New Years Eve Extravaganza, with unlimited drinks, finger foods, and live music cabaret, for only €25 per person.
The Metro Cafe, Restaurant and Bar is simply a place you need never leave. From breakfasts to casual lunches and candle-light dinners, music and dancing.
